Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have chronic diarrhea which could be due to number of factors such as food intolerance , food allergy, parasitic infection or inflammatory bowel disease.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you to

- Take plenty of fluids to rehydrate.

- Take diet rich in multivitamins and avoid any oily sharp and fast food.

- Take diet rich in fibres as well.

- For now eat light and non spicy, eat fresh fruits and vegetables and eat fruits like banana.


I would suggest you to consult gastroenterologist for proper examination. Doctor may prescribe antibiotics like ornidazole , albendazole , omeprazole along with loperamide.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
